Not‐for‐profit organizations (NFPs) prepare financial statements in order to report critical information about programs and operations to a diverse group of stakeholders. Users of an NFP's financial statements include donors, grantors, creditors, program beneficiaries, and others who have a need to assess the financial health of the NFP. In this course, you will work through several examples to understand the basic reporting requirements, note disclosures and presentation formats that are available to NFPs.

Creating a nonprofit's marketing strategy is integral to raising money, cultivating supporters and increasing community awareness. Organizations face serious competition with the expansion of internet advertising, social media business and expanding community nonprofits. In addition to seeking local funding, the nonprofit must break through advertising clutter for attention and donations. Designing and executing a marketing strategic plan is challenging, particularly for the nonprofit with limited financial resources and staff. In this course students will begin with a broad view of marketing basics and then narrow the focus to create a marketing plan by the end of the course. Classes will explore how to conduct an agency analysis, write goals, outline a realistic plan and include a budget, timeline, tools and tactics. Students will learn to use traditional and social media platforms and how to build and implement a realistic plan. The class will include interactive discussions, small group work to help each student create a marketing strategy and plan, and guest speakers to provide a local view of marketing challenges and opportunities.

Not‐for‐profits (NFPs) are unique in that they often receive substantial amounts of contributions, many of which contain donor‐imposed restrictions as to their use. The existence or absence of donors' restrictions forms the basis for the classification of an NFP's net assets. In this course, you will learn the basics of net asset classification. Topics covered include donor‐imposed restrictions, identifying when restrictions may be implied, financial statement presentation of net assets and required footnote disclosures. Contributions can come with donor‐imposed conditions, restrictions, or both. In this course, you will learn the core principles for recognition and measurement of contributions. You will have an opportunity to work through real world scenarios. Topics covered include promises to give, donated goods and services, contributions of long‐lived assets, performance guarantees, and below‐market interest rate loans. The course culminates in a case study in which you will have an opportunity to apply the technical concepts you have learned to real‐world scenarios.

Most tax‐exempt, not‐for‐profits (NFPs) are required to file an annual information return Form 990, which is filed with the IRS and available to the public. Accurate and complete reporting of the Form 990 is critical, not only to maintain an NFP's tax‐exempt status, but also to uphold the organization's reputation and its ability to raise funds from donors, members or other supporters. Some of the most heavily scrutinized sections of the Form 990 include the questions regarding an NFP's governance practices, such as the composition of the entity's board of directors, its executive compensation practices and disclosure of organizational policies. In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of the Form 990 series of returns, including the basic financial and non‐financial information necessary for preparing a complete and accurate return. Topics in this course include the structure of the core Form 990 and related schedules, adjustments to reconcile the Form 990 to an entity's financial statements, and common errors that should be avoided.

No one wants to believe that they or their not‐for‐profit (NFP) could be the victim of fraud, but unfortunately no one is immune. In this course, you will work through real world examples to understand fraud schemes and errors that are found in not‐for‐profit organizations. You will learn how an NFP's board and management can implement effective internal controls to address the risk of fraud and so that such issues are more likely to be prevented or detected in a timely manner.
